Using big data to drive sustainability at a global FMCG giant

As a global laundry and home care leader, Henkel is committed to sustainable operations and came to AVEVA to help realize their sustainability vision.

Henkel 2020+ is a series of initiatives aimed at delivering sustainable and profitable business growth through digital transformation. Their objective: to become three times more efficient by 2030.

Driving energy efficiency

To reach their goal, Henkel needed a better way to capture, understand and communicate energy consumption and emissions data from across Laundry and Home Care’s global supply chain. At the same time, they wanted to cut energy consumption across production sites, using ISO 50001 standards as guidance.

A new digital backbone

Early in the project, Henkel identified the need for a new environmental management system, able to integrate with legacy hardware and assimilate with future hardware communications standards.

We helped them create a new energy monitoring system based on AVEVA software. As of 2020, the system incorporates more than 4,000 physical and virtual sensors, capturing over one million data points a day across electricity, fossil fuels, compressed air, steam, water and sewage.

37m energy savings over four years

Data-driven results

Today, the system is used by more than 2,000 employees to easily observe and analyze performance and identify possible improvements.

As well as delivering meaningful progress towards sustainability goals, the solution has saved Henkel €37m to date. That equates to full payback four times over — with 100% ROI delivered after less than four years.

Digitalizing operations at the Middle East’s largest integrated dairy

This is Almarai, the world’s largest vertically integrated dairy company and the Middle East’s biggest food and beverage manufacturer.

A vertically integrated supply chain

Almarai manufactures a huge range of products across dairy, fresh juices, infant formula, bakery and more.

Products are manufactured at multiple sites across the region before arriving at a central distribution center and replenishment hub. Here, they’re checked and sent on to market, enabling Almarai to ensure quality and respond to fluctuating demand.

18m+ daily customers
#1 largest vertically integrated dairy

With little insight into the daily production operations, it was difficult for the team to manage and optimize across the supply chain.

Real-time oversight

We helped Almarai introduce AVEVA software to provide real-time visibility into filling and packaging performance.

Now, the team can make more informed decisions, better support their supply chain strategy and produce more food, more efficiently for people across the region.

Transforming the world’s leading discrete manufacturing network

Schneider Electric is a leading manufacturer of power management solutions, with a presence in more than 100 countries. With the Smart Factory Program, the organization set out to harness Industry 4.0 and drive sustainability and operational effectiveness at its plants.

The team wanted to digitalize work management, digitally monitor equipment and labor effectiveness and to easily scale across a network of more than 100 global factories, using the power of cloud.

70% faster response time
8% patents received

Delivering continuous improvements

We worked with the team to develop a cloud-based system, purpose-built to drive lean work management practices and enable data-driven performance measurement in discrete manufacturing.

The result is a novel software application that enables complex analysis of Schneider Electric’s vast manufacturing operations.

With digital process management and real-time visibility into shop floor operations, the new cloud-based system has delivered an impressive 10% increase in worker productivity and 70% faster response time through automated escalation of issues.

After successful pilot programs, the team has since scaled deployment to more than 100 manufacturing sites in just three years. Today, five of the factories have been designated global sustainability lighthouses by the World Economic Forum, driving sustainability and innovation best practices for the entire sector.

Enabling a Digital Manufacturing vision for a global F&B leader

Danone is a world-leading food manufacturer with a mission to drive healthier and more sustainable consumption through its ‘One Planet. One Health’ initiative.

A new global standard

Danone’s Specialist Nutrition team needed a way to standardize processes and reporting across their many global sites. The existing system relied on manual entry and processing, which undermined productivity, reduced throughput and made it difficult to quickly understand and assess data.

The proposed new system was designed to solve those issues, helping to preserve traceability, assess factory usage, measure true performance, and provide a strong digital foundation for the future.

A state-of-the-art Manufacturing Execution System (MES)

We helped Danone develop a core MES model (DANMES), based on AVEVA software, with 20 standard functionalities, including pre-approved FDA compliant processes for quality functions.

The system has been successfully deployed at the manufacturer’s Indonesia site, and is now being rolled out across the Specialized Nutrition division’s 25 plant sites.
